I have a big dent in my BDCW skid plate, how in the world I did it I have no idea. It's thick steel. I know I would have just shattered the stock one with that hit.

Got into my carbs for the first time. Cleaned and inpected jetting as per H2W. All were correct based on my setup, but the mixture screw was off a 1/4 turn. Measured float heights and all were good. Installed my Uni Filter, buttoned her all back up, put on tank....and Bang....fired up w 1/2 choke. I dumped a little gas in the bowls b4 putting them back on carbs. Was hoping that would help starting the bike....seemed to. ....NOTE TO SELF...Don't turn left fuel tap on before connecting right fuel tap







Next on list....

Front wheel bearings
Clutch Jet
Front and rear brake bleed

Be another week b4 I get my things from CJ

Heidenau Scouts showed up at my front door today. I've got about 1000 miles left on the ol' Pirellis. They're already at 5k so I'm pretty pleased with their longevity.

Fork oil changed, headset bearing greased up, engine ice in, forgot to buy oil.
Slowly but surely I am getting it all done.
Tomorrow I tackle the front tire. Hope it goes easier than the first time.

Having a shop cat can be entertaining, but I wonder how much cat fur is now in my engine, clutch, forks, bearings....

Geek took a hit on his in Moab that if he had the stock setup he would've lost his clutch cover(I think) it was a HUGE dent from what I remember.

Rode the SE through Tengger Semeru National Park. Through the big caldera, up Gunung Penanjakan, back down through the caldera again (on volcanic sand), up Gunung Bromo and so on. Had to rescue two soldiers at one stage. They went across a river in the caldera and hit soft sand - I got my feet stuck...sunk into the sand over the top of the boots getting their bike out. I'll get some photos up eventually. The net maxes out at about 5kps here.

Replaced Oil Pressure Regulator

2003 Adv -S
50 000km (~31000mi)

Had some problems removing the big M22 nut, but with a borrowed impact driver it was a piece of cake to get it off.


Regulator Spring is just below the min length 42mm.


Basket is in good shape, only slight wear.


Clutch Booster looks relative good, yes?
Not the best picture.


Discs looks almost like new, only the inner clutch disc has a groove from the spring washer.

Installed the new Moto-Tuner LED tail light/turn signal combo unit today. An eBay find... perfect fit (brake light/tail light connector was a dead match) and super-simple to install. Has 2 extra leads (blue/left and yellow/right) for the turn signals. Tapped into the purple (left) and black (right) leads at the molex connector for the signals. Worked like a charm... nice bright tail light and super bright brake light. Half the light flashes yellow with the signals and the whole unit flashes yellow with the emergency flashers. Very cool!



My new set of Heidenau K60 Scouts showed up today, too...

Replaced the front pads - again !

I had put EBC blacks on a mere 300km ago, and they're completely done. I was quite surprised, then again I spend 99.9% of my time on the beast in the dirt, sand, mud, sliding, spinning, etc...

Thankfully, a local dealer had a pair of EBC FA2092HH, slapped em in, and they feel much better (not as soft), and more importantly provide adequate braking/stopping. The stock (Toshiba) pads are obviously worth their weight in gold as they lasted nearly 5K ! I'm curious to see how long these EBCs last, and if not comparable - will revert to stockers...

Summary: for the monster (and me) - sintered pads are a must.

one more technique

I just straightened out a paper clip, and then bent a small U in the end. Then I slipped the U past the metal end cap of the filter, hooked it on the back side of the end cap, and pulled it right out. No force needed, popped right out.

Try it, you'll like it!

Then a friend wanders by and using the needle nose pliers pulls it right out!

does any one here have some slick trick to getting the stock oil filter out. there was not much room to work the pliers around and edge, and no lip of any sort to get a grip on it.
[the oil had been drained weeks prior do to a small wreck in which the bike caught fire below the carbs and above the engine. does it usually pop out with the oil coming out?]

I don't know how my buddy did it.
but thank god he did.

-New air filter

-Installed Powerlet/ BMW plug into the glove box

-Installed a Wolfman bag on the rear.



I need a set of stock rear grab handles if anyone has some laying around for cheap.....
